What to do when your lego Super Star Destroyer isn’t big enough!

LEGO builder Thomas Benedikt has a dream and it is ginormous! He wants to build a 13-ft Lego Super Star Destroyer and he’s using Kickstarter to meet his $15,ooo CAD goal. In case you’re wondering, Lego already offers a 4-ft star destroyer but apparently that wasn’t big enough for Thomas’ dreams.

This is not the first time that Mr.Benedikt has taken up such an effort. In 2009 he build a 7ft long, 30,000 piece Mon Calamari cruiser from Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Some Statistics of the proposed effort:

  • Piece count: 90,000 (approximate)
  • Dimensions: 12’6” x 4’1” x 1’
  • Weight: 100 Kg (220 pounds)
  • Surface Area: 53 Square Feet
  • A fully integrated LED lighting system that will allow her 5000 transparent-blue tiles (windows) and 13 engines to light-up in the dark

As of the moment of this writing, the Kickstarter effort has gathered $726CAD out of the required $15,000CAD.
